"today," tuesday, october 18th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. just three tuesdays, it is going to be election day.
7:02 am
long time coming. and it has been. that's right. >> voters are going to be heading to the polls, they'll decide, of course, the next president. key senate races as well. let's get right to the state of the race today. melania trump speaking out defending her husband against those allegations by multiple women of sexual misconduct. she says this is all part of a media conspiracy and she also dismissed trump's comments on that leaked 2005 tape as "boys talk." just out this morning, our latest nbc news/survey monkey online hillary clinton with an eight-point lead among likely voters. 51%-43%. that lead was six points two weeks ago. >> once again, clinton is off the campaign trail today preparing for tomorrow's final presidential debate. donald trump heading west with two rallies in colorado. our decision 2016 team will break it all down. we'll start with nbc's hallie jackson. good morning to you. >> reporter: hey there, savannah, good morning. donald trump making this
7:03 am
attack against hillary clinton, even as he takes a jab at the nation's top republican and continues to take aim without evidence at what he calls a rigged system. >> reporter: instead of backing down in the face of fact checks about voter fraud, donald trump's doubling down. >> more than 1.8 million deceased individuals right now are listed as voters. oh, that's wonderful. >> reporter: that stat, with experts at the time finding "no evidence that the errors lead to fraud on election day." still, trump insists -- >> this is tremendous voter fraud. and how republican leadership doesn't see that is beyond me. >> reporter: the comments come as more republicans are speaking out against trump's claims, including his former rival, marco rubio. >> this election's not being rigid. and i'll explain to you why it is not being rigid in florida and why i hope he stops saying that.
7:04 am
state. each of which conduct their own elections. i promise you, there is not a 67-county conspiracy to rig this election. >> reporter: trump, taking shots at his own party while campaigning in wisconsin, the home state of house speaker, paul ryan, suggesting ryan does not want him to win the white house because of his own political ambitions. >> well, maybe not, because maybe he wants to run in four years. or maybe he doesn't know how to win. >> reporter: the gop nominee also taking shots at his democratic rival pushing his clinton. >> quid pro quo. >> reporter: trump seizing on newly released fbi documents from 2015. they suggest an fbi employee claimed a colleague discussed quid pro quo with a top state department official regarding classification of a hillary clinton e-mail. "in exchange for marking the e-mail unclassified, state would reciprocate by allowing the fbi to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden,
7:05 am
but we're going to put an end to that on november 8th. >> reporter: but both the state department and the fbi deny the account, saying no quid pro quo deal ever took place. the e-mail was never marked unclassified, and it was in fact an fbi official who originated the question of placing agents overseas in a totally separate discussion. that's not stopping republicans from pouncing. democrats calling it a non-story. but, still a story -- from vulgar audio recorded in the presence of others in a 2005 "access hollywood" bus tour, a show owned by nbc universal. >> he was lead on like, egg on, from the host to say dirty and bad stuff. >> reporter: trump's wife, melania, for the first time speaking publicly about her husband's behavior. >> it's kind of two teenage boys actually they should behave
7:06 am
>> correct. and sometimes i said i have two boys at home. i have my young son, and i have my husband. >> reporter: on the campaign trail today, donald trump trying to make a play for colorado as the clinton campaign considers expanding their map in places out west like arizona. and while trump trails clinton nationally in most recent polls, in a new poll out today, the cnn/orc p s nevada, he's ahead by four in a different critical battleground -- ohio. >> hallie jackson already in place for the debate in vegas, thank you. nbc news announced last night that billy bush would be leaving the "today" show effective immediately. noting that he was a valued colleague and long-time member of the broader nbc family. a statement billy released separately last night read, in part, i look forward to what lies ahead. all of us here at "today" wish
7:07 am
analysis of the race. we've got nicolle wallace and steve kornacki in place, guys. good morning to both of you. >> can we start by talking about this alleged quid pro quo between the fbi and the state department? i'll start with you, nicolle. both of those entities denied anything like this happened. they said these were parallel discussions. but what, at least, are we learning about the way the clinton team worked to lessen the fallout from these e-mails based on what we're hearing? >> well, you stories reinforces her essential weakness of her candidacy going back to the beginning of the democratic primary, was that people had a feeling that they couldn't trust her. yesterday in ohio i met with undecided voters. that follows her around. that is the burden that she carries. all politicians carry a burden. that is hers. this story underscores it. if donald trump had the capacity for discipline, this could really be damaging for her. >> let me just follow up and say, so you don't believe that the words clinton and e-mail
7:08 am
>> not only have they not run their course in this election cycle, but if we were running against someone who had the capacity for any sort of sustained disciplined campaign against her, they really could have proven fatal. but because she's running on someone who steps on his own message every 15 minutes, i don't think this will ever sort of dominate the news as it would if she were running against someone other than donald trump. >> meanwhile, donald trump is fighting a two-front war, certainly against hillary clinton and he is saying a lot about this he's also going against paul ryan, leaders of the republican party and the election system in this country at large. now we're seeing top republicans, including marco rubio just last night in a debate, visibly irritated about this notion that our system is problematic or corrupt. >> this is example number 1,500, i think in this campaign, of donald trump putting republican leaders in a very uncomfortable position, forcing them to make that choice, do you want to be loyal to your party's nominee
7:09 am
want to stay truer to sort of the traditional rules, traditional norms of politics. you can see that clip you played from marco rubio, he is making them squirm, he is making them very uncomfortable. there is also evidence some of these republican candidates out there, when they try to distance themselves from trump in the interest of helping themselves in the general election, they might be hurting themselves with trump's voters. >> melania trump went out last night and defended her us had on two fronts, one saying he was egged on in that taped conversation with billy bush. the other that these him of sexual misconduct are showing questionable timing, i guess that's the best way to put it. >> yeah. >> did she help or hurter had husband with women voters last night? >> spouses are always net positive. spouses are usually held harmless from even sort of the dirtiest sides of their spouse's campaigns. i think that holds mostly true for melania. the problem with what melania did last night was the timing. it took so long. it might have been helpful the weekend that the tape broke.
7:10 am
a poll that 90% of americans were aware of the tape or had seen the tape. i'm just not sure if she had the ability or potential to change hearts and minds with her message last night. >> you ready to take a little walk? >> let's do it. >> we want to talk about something now. we've talked a lot about polling with three weeks to go until election day. so steve is going to help us out by looking back at some past presidential elections. we'll look at where the polling was three weeks out from that election, and where it ended up. start in 2012. >> the most recent election. , our nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. what happened in the election, pretty much right there. 51%-47%. basically three weeks out, that was the result. >> showing the people make up their minds and three weeks usually doesn't change much. does the same hold true when we go back to 2008, mccain and obama? >> this is a little interesting. right now our poll in this race has double digits. this poll in '08 had it at double digits three weeks out. it was a solid win for obama but
7:11 am
so what you saw in the final weeks looked like a blowout. some of those republican voters came home in the end. that might be something to look for in the homestretch here. >> let's go back to an election that we'll talk about in schools for decades to come, 2000, bush and gore. >> three weeks out we had bush ahead six points. this was one of the bigger margins he had but he did lead down the stretch. interesting thing to remember -- this is forgotten because of the recount -- in the final days of that race, there was that story about george w. bush and a from years earlier. a lot of people think that's why gore caught him in the end in the popular vote. but not the electoral. >> there is possible there can be a late october surprise. >> or early november surprise. >> steve, thank you very much. savannah? again, the debate is on wednesday night, 9:00 on nbc. we move on now to other news. the fierce military campaign that's under way to retake iraq's second-largest city from isis. one official there already calling it a turning point in the war against terror. nbc's chief foreign
7:12 am
hi, richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the offensive to drive isis out of mosul is now in its second day. we have advanced to a front line position that iraqi troops have taken up. we are just outside the village of hut. this village has mostly been cleared overnight by iraqi soldiers of isis. isis had been holding this town for the last two years or so. you can see some villagers have been leaving this still a small isis presence inside. there are still potentially some snipers, some suicide bombers. that's why i'm wearing a helmet right now. but in general, iraqi troops and american commanders that we've been speaking to are quite pleased with the progress that they've been making. this is how the operation is unfolding. iraqi troops advance to a village like this. we are now some 30 miles south of mosul.
7:13 am
once they feel they have it sufficiently cleared, then they leapfrog on to the next one, and to the next one. and if this progress continues and momentum certainly does seem to be with the iraqi forces right now, commanders believe that they will reach the urban areas of mosul in perhaps just a few days or a few weeks. savannah? >> richard engel right there. thank you very much. thousands of mourners joined olympic sprinter tyson gay last night at a candlelight vigil in who was shot and killed over the weekend. crowd gathered at her high school track where the 15-year-old spent time following in her father's footsteps. trinity was hit by a bullet early sunday morning outside a lexington restaurant. police say that she was caught in the crossfire between men in two cars. on monday, three men pleaded not guilty in connection with that shooting. if you tried booking a flight online last night but were unsuccessful, here's why. a computer issue prevented
7:14 am
jetblue and virgin america. all three of those carriers use the same third party airline reservation system so that explains the problem. international flights were not affected and the airlines say this technical issue has now been fixed. booking system is back up and running. this one is a little bizarre. an odd development in bob dylan's nobel prize for literature. apparently the academy can't seem to find that legendary musician. nbc's keir simmons has the latest on this. >> hey, matt, good morning. i guess the problem with rock stars is that they behave like, well, rock stars. the nobel foundation confirming to nbc news that they have not heard from dylan whether he will accept the award or attend the ceremony. >> bob dylan. >> reporter: when the surprise announcement came, there were cheers and there were questions. did bob dylan really win the
7:15 am
others not as kind. i totally get the nobel committee. reading books is hard. as for the music legend's response, complete and total silence. not known for his respect for authority, dylan accepted the presidential medal of freedom in 2012, but nobel officials say they've been knocking on dylan's door for at least five days now. right now we're doing nothing, the academy's permanent secretary, told a radio station. i've called and sent e-mails to his closest for now, that is certainly enough. dylan was on stage in las vegas when the announcement was made. he didn't acknowledge the accolade, ending his set with sinatra's why try to change me now. that same day, there were questions about whether he would perform at the ceremony. >> no. i think there will be a speech but i don't know. i haven't talked to him yet. >> reporter: now it seems he may not turn up. or even accept the award.
7:16 am
i guess most folks wouldn't think twice about accepting an award like this, but if you're dylan, it's all right. it's not as if he is missing or anything. he does have until december when this certainly takes place. by the way, there is a $900,000 award and a gold medal to go with it. >> might want to show up then. thank you very much. appreciate that. >> who was racking their brains for other dylan lyrics right now? >> "blowing in the wind request the is as good as it gets. we found dylan. >> i'm right here. medal. >> we'll take the forecast. >> which does look very, very nice. we have record breaking heat expected across the country again today. 44 places hit record highs yesterday. we'll do it again today. we'll do it again tomorrow. we've got just this warm air pumping in from the south. we've got this cold front that's going to slide in and eventually start to cool things down a bit. we are looking at perhaps more records breaking today. nashville, the forecast is 89. the record is 87. louisville should tie the record at 86.
7:17 am
the upper northeast, we should tie the record in albany, new york. good chance we'll break the record with a forecast high of 83 degrees. same goes for baltimore with a forecast high of 84. tomorrow will likely crush records. in philadelphia, the old record is 80 degrees. we're forecasting a high of 85. and back across parts of the ohio and tennessee river valleys, temperatures should get well up into the 90s with the record being 89 degrees. we will start to see things cool down and become more seasonal which is really ? at walgreens, you're free- free to seize the savings on medicare part d. from one-dollar copays on select plans to rewards points on all prescriptions, it's easy to save big at walgreens. ? just stop by walgreens. ? then sit back and enjoy the savings.
7:18 am
>> and that's your latest forecast. >> all right, dylan, thank you very much. coming up, much more from melania trump addressing the sexual assault accusations leveled against her husband for the first time. and is it worth it to splurge on designer makeup or do drugstore cosmetics work just as well. with the help of some identical twins, our "rossen reports" team will put our eyes to the test. but first, this is "today"
7:19 am
i spent many years as a nuclear missile launch officer. if the president gave the order we had to launch the missiles, that would be it. i prayed that call would never come. [ radio chatter ] self control may be all that keeps these missiles from firing. [ sirens blearing ] i would bomb the [ beep] out of them. i want to be unpredictable. i love war. the thought of donald trump with nuclear weapons scares me to death. it should scare everyone.

7:30 now on a tuesday morning. it is the 18th day of october, 2016. going to get close to breaking some record and in a lot of other parts of the country, dylan is going to be here with the forecast in just a little while. >> don't see any hat or scarves out there this morning. inside studio 1a, we have a check of today's headlines. an unmanned rocket loaded with research equipment and food is on its way to the insurance space station. it was launched from virginia late last night. it is expected to reach the station some time on sunday. hillary clinton's lead in the presidential race is growing
7:31 am
among likely voters. that's a two-point increase from two weeks ago. and during a rally in green bay, wisconsin, donald trump stepped up his unsubstantiated claim that the election is rigged. using a 2012 report to suggest fraud is taking place now. >> you ever hear these people? they say there's nothing going on. people that have died ten years ago are still voting. illegal immigrants are voting. >> trump also proposed a five-step ethics reform package time to drain the swamp in washington, d.c. let's go to "today's campaign moment." an unprecedented proposal from donald trump, then mocked by the white house. on monday press secretary josh earnest was asked what he thought about trump's suggestion that the candidates take a drug test before tomorrow's debate. >> seems not only that the candidate who snorted his way through the first two debates is accusing the other candidate of taking drugs? that's a curious development in the campaign.
7:32 am
you think that the sniffling or snorting, as you described it, might have been related to -- >> not at all. >> so what were you saying? what were you trying to get across? >> i'm trying to have a little fun. you guys are so serious today. >> so far, no response to that from the trump campaign. as we mentioned, melania trump is now speaking out for the first time since several women accused her husband of misconduct. nbc's stephanie gosk is here with more on wha >> good morning, guys. in this interview with cnn, melania trump is really highlighted as her husband's biggest defender, taking on his accusers, the media, and painting a picture of what her role will be in the white house. melania trump speaking out and defending her husband. >> he apologized. i accept his apology. i hope the american people will accept it. >> reporter: opening up in her first interview since a 2005 audiotape came to light in which
7:33 am
his words recorded in the presence of others during an "access hollywood" bus tour, a program run by nbc universal. like her husband, melania trump dismissed it as locker room talk. >> i heard many different stuff, boys talk. the boys the way they talk when they grow up and they want to sometimes show each other, oh, this and that and talking about th but, yeah, i was surprised. of course. >> reporter: mrs. trump also accused the media of working in collusion with the clinton campaign, including nbc news. >> it was the media. it was nbc. it was "access hollywood." it was left wing. you could see that. and the way it comes out was everything was organized. >> reporter: now nine women have come forward accusing trump of inappropriate sexual contact.
7:34 am
melania trump vee meahemently d. >> i believe my husband. i believe my husband. this was all organized from the position. >> reporter: the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows hillary clinton ahead, 55%-35% with women voters. and while she is keeping a low profile, melania trump says she still offers her husband advice before debates. >> i always say be yourself, be calm, be focused, stay on the issues. >> reporter: the former model also shared her frustration at the campaign's tone. including how photos she had taken years earlier were splashed on the cover of a new york tabloid. >> i'm very proud i did those pictures. i'm not ashamed of my body. >> reporter: mrs. trump also shared what she hopes to accomplish as first lady. fighting negativity and bullying online.
7:35 am
>> reporter: and delivering her own message to those who judge her. >> i'm very strong. people, they don't really know me. people think and talk about me like, oh, melania, oh, poor, melania. don't feel sorry for me. don't feel sorry for me. i can handle everything. >> melania trump has kept a lower profile than other members of the trump family, but she will once again be out in public final debate in las vegas. guys? >> steph, thanks very much. reminder, you can watch that debate right here on nbc. let's swing it over to dylan with another check of the weather. >> morning, guys. talking about record breaking high temperatures not just in the south and northeast, but tomorrow across southern california we could see some record highs, too. this area of high pressure is setting up producing these santa ana winds. some gusts in the mountains and
7:36 am
but land, it is a very dry wind so we could see some fires that develop spread very rapidly because of the relative low humidities and also the warmer temperatures and that dry wind. we do have some red flag warnings, including santa barbara and l.a., also down into san diego. we also have some fire weather watches across the border of nevada, too. that's going to be the threat out that way. a little farther north, it is all about the rain that continues and temperatures well below average. then of course, those record high temperatures across the

7:42 am
you're doing and watch this. there are so many makeup brands out there to choose from and we all know they can get expensive. women spend around $15,000 in their lifetime on makeup alone. but is it worth it? do you really need to spend the small fortune to get a flawless look? this morning the beauty brand face-off. designer high-end beauty brands can cost you big. some say they have better ingredients that go on easier and last longer. but d or can makeup from the drugstore give you that glamorous look for less? to find out, we enlisted identical twins. >> hi. >> yep. those twins. from the discover card commercial. >> awesome sauce. >> lisa? >> julie? >> you sound really different on the phone. >> reporter: today, something a little different. you are going to be wearing the fancy stuff. we are talking about foundation,
